  • Porsche Lotus 23 C

    This car was carved from a block of wood and a mold made to pop shells.

    I have showed this car before, but it got a make over with a full interior and a new Brass and Wire chassis with a sidewinder FF50. New Paint and decals as well.

        Beautiful job on the interior. Any pics of the sidewinder chassis?

          Thanks for the comments

          Here is the chassis. Wire and Brass with floating side pans.

            The beauty of slot cars is that they can be whatever you want them to be and yours is a great looking interpretation of that.

              Have you thought of having it scanned. It would be a great 3d print.
              I'm new at printing but I would love to have one in my collection.

                It is a little thick and would suggest a new rendering for a 3D print. Length and width are accurate but the body height is a little much. This was done to allow a 130 type motor to be used. In hindsight I wish I had built it in 1/28 scale

                I will have another go at this and remove some height and rescribe the door and panel lines
